Florence Welch has confessed she has a "girl crush" on rapper MIA.

The Florence And The Machine star, 25, has been dating events organiser James Nesbitt after splitting with her long-term boyfriend.

But she told the Radio Times: "I have a massive girl crush on MIA - her video for Bad Girls is the best music video I've ever seen."

MIA hit the headlines in February when she flipped her middle finger and swore into the camera during her Super Bowl half-time performance.

Florence also said she had her eye on US rapper ASAP Rocky.

"He's got this mouth full of gold teeth and he's really beautiful. He's so cool," she said.

The singer admitted that she found touring difficult, and that "night times are really hard".

"You miss actual intimacy and home and connection," she told the magazine. "My house is like a graveyard of suitcases. I'm sick of it. They haunt me."

She said of her distinctive looks: "My normal face, if I'm not being animated or talking, if I'm just sitting, I look really angry."

Rihanna recently told of her admiration for Cheryl Cole after the British star called the Rude Boy singer her "girl crush".
